First Night at Work

Sooo I got offered a job at Taybarns, I accepted as its closer to me than Tesco, and the pay is basically the same + I get more hours there.
I started last night at 6pm for a trial shift to see if I liked the work or not. MY GOD it was hectic in there and there is literally no stopping at all.
But I like it, I'm proud of myself for getting a job, even though its minimum wage it's still a job!
I basically have to pick up dirty plates, talk to customers, clean tables and take the dishes to be washed.
It's not hard, but it's not boring either.
There isn't any time to stop and talk to the other employees, but thats good for me as I didn't go to work to make friends.
I get paid on a Friday (woop!) so I'll have money for the weekend and I start properly tomorrow with a 9 hour shift, 12pm - 9pm.
I'll let you know how I get on..

Another Interview

I've got another interview today at an all-you-can-eat buffet. I know I've got a job at Tesco but I really don't like the hours and this place (Taybarns) is closer to get to.
I've got a scooter now aswell woo! so I can get to work, and I've got my CBT on Friday so I'll be driving soon!
Ooh it was my 18th birthday on Tuesday aswell and I went for a photoshoot as a kind of present. The photographer sent me some samples but I wont get all of the pictures for another two weeks.. Here are the samples..

Just updating you all :)

I've Got A Job!!!

Soooo I got offered a job!
It's at Tesco and I'm over the moon really :)
BUT (theres always a but!) the hours are terrible.
Mon, Tues, Fri, Sat.. 5pm-10:15pm So I'm going be stuck in the city centre on my own at night on a weekend.
I'm going to do my CBT and get a 125cc scooter so I don't have to wait around in dodgy bus stations late at night, so basically it's going to cost me about £650 just to start working!
Ah well, at least when I've got my scooter sorted I'll be able to apply for alot more places.
AND I'm 18 on Tuesday, so I'll be able to work in alot more places too!
Things are starting to look up :)
One thing I'm quite gutted about though is that my mum and dad are moving back to Spain and I'm staying here. So I'm not going to have my mums support and when I think about it I get really upset. They've hardly given me any warning aswell, as they're going on 4th October.
I need to let my mum go as she was having problems with my dad living over there and with her staying here with me, and she thinks I will really thrive if I'm not depending on her all the time.
I could go straight back to how I was, or I can become someone who I can be proud of.
I've got a house, job, a stable partner and a beautiful daughter, I couldn't really ask for more!

No luck

I didn't get the sainsburys job. Obviously they want a non-English speaking person to work behind their roast chicken counter, it's not like they have to speak to english people everyday.
This country really is all about the foreigners, I'd heard it before but I thought it was just people being racist but now I've had a first hand experience with a British company putting people from other countries first.
I am more than qualified for that job. I would of suited that job perfectly. I would of been able to work in that job without trying to learn more english vocabulary.
But no, give OUR jobs to the asian community.

So I've been for two interviews this week..
The first one was for a care home in Newcastle, I think it went really well, but they haven't got back to me yet, so I'm not holding out much hope.
& then today I went for an interview at Sainsburys and I've had the worst day ever!
My interview was for 3:30pm, so I got on the bus at 2:40pm hoping to be there for about 3:15pm.
The bus broke down in the middle of effing nowhere for 25 minutes, which made me late. I ran from the bus station in killer heels to Newcastle college where I was going for my interview, and when I arrived it had a big sign on the door saying 'Sainsburys Interviews are at the store on Liverpool Road' So I had to run back through Newcastle to get to Sainsburys, I arrived there at 4pm, sweating and out of breath and I also fell over in the middle of town in front of loads of people which did wonders for my confidence.
The interview went fine, apart from being half an hour late.
Now I had to get to the bus station by 5:20pm to get the last bus back to my house.
But the bus company had decided to change its times last month and the last bus was at 5:00pm, great.
So I thought I'd get on the bus that goes to the nearest to my house, but I got it wrong AGAIN and ended up in the town centre which is about 3 miles from my house.
I was wearing 6 inch stilettos and I live in the countryside, the walk was all uphill and I was also carrying two loaves of bread and 8 pints of milk.
I got lost twice because I've never had to walk it before and now I'm just feeling totally depressed because I don't think I'm going to get the job.
There was about eight of us at the interview, and I was the only white person and the only one who was obviously native English.
I just feel totally depressed, like I'm never getting anywhere and it seems like so much effort.
I really need to sort my life out.
